    Battle for Azeroth - Spell Animations
    Warlocks and a few other classes have some new animations in the Battle for Azeroth alpha. Keep in mind that we are still very early in the process.







    Activision Blizzard Earnings Call
    The Activision Blizzard quarterly earnings call didn't have a ton of news this time around.

    • Blizzard is expected to grow in 2018 with the release of World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth this summer.
    • Activision Blizzard had 385 million Monthly Active Users in the quarter, up from 384 million last quarter.
    • Blizzard had 40 million MAUs for the quarter. While down sequentially, this is the 6th quarter in a row with 40 million or more MAUs primarily driven by Overwatch and Hearthstone
    • For the second quarter in a row, players spent over 50 minutes per day in Activision, Blizzard, and King games, in line with some of the most engaging online connected platforms in the world.
    • The inaugural season of the Overwatch League started on January 10 with 12 world-class team owners from across the globe, multiple league and team-level sponsors, a premium viewing experience and a robust distribution strategy. In its first week, the Overwatch League reached more than 10 million unique viewers across the world with an average audience of more than 280,000 on a per minute basis.
    • Blizzard delivered record segment revenues and operating income for a year with no major game release, as they continued to deliver continuous content across franchises including Overwatch, Hearthstone, and World of Warcraft
    • The Overwatch League has met and exceeded expectations. The focus now is on audience growth.

    The problem with Hearthstone (at least for me) is that I'm willing to pay up to $60 for a game, but HS costs hundreds of dollars every time there's a new expansion to get the cards you want. It's an extremely expensive game.

    I'm honestly not sure why they didn't have "Skyrim" listed on there at least as a joke, but they are apparently looking at this for marketing purposes.

    Warlock fire spells look more like magma spells.

    Hunter ones are kinda fine, except for rapid shot. It doesn't look rapid at all, looks slow as fuck and bad lol.

    Who the fuck creates these idiotic polls

    They look like dark fire...would you rather have them copy fire mage's ones?

    Interesting that so many said no with Hearthstone, but thats probably accurate. Was too much to keep up with and loot crates are locked down upon more nowadays than when it first came out

    (Side note, I feel like a lot of thes comments tend to focus on [Why is X on the frontpage] even though its appropriate, like ppl still do that with DLC and its WoW-related 100% lol. Not all content is gonna be for you. I think a variety of content is good, whether it be tweets, PTR videos, polls, addon spotlight, podcasts, comics, etc. MMOC probably isnt a huge team so I think they do a great job with what they have to work with. Daily posts for going on a decade now and it's all free. They've been consistent with a variety approach since the start. That said, its fine to give feedback if you don't like something on the frontpage, but also try to say what you do like at the same time, and also be understanding of the variety approach)

    Why is Serpent Sting now some weird sidearm crossbow instead of just a poison arrow off your actual weapon?

    If that's the only way for it to look like fire, yes.

    finally, a decent rain of fire animation

    I'm seriously hoping most of those SV animations are placeholders. Arctic Bola is just a snowball and throwing owls at people is kinda silly.
    Rapid Fire looks especially bad though.

    Because it's Survival's Serpent Sting and they're still a melee spec.

    Well that makes sense. Looks weird in the shown animation though where he sheathes his bow on his hip to fire a crossbow

    what other games are you playing:
    [x] none of these bloody options.

    I hope Death Bolt is a placeholder...because it is practically a copy of Demon Bolt right now.

    Not a huge fan of the Incinerate change. It looks OK, but I have always loved the current "ground-creeping" animation, it is very unique as opposed to the traditional flying projectile animations that most other spells have, and it looks really cool when it is hitting multiple targets. Please don't change it!

    Are their money greedy managers that blind?
    With the first exp. of HS they killed their own f2p playerbase. Now it is just a money sink. You cannot even reach rank20 with basic decks. The playerbase goes down slowly until only the payers stay.
    But who cares at the end of the day. They only use 5% or less for developing by the income of HS.
